During the Transition, a Transgender Man Discovered He Was Pregnant. He Proceeded to Give Birth, Breastfeed, and Is Now Raising His Son

3 months ago

Tanius was 31 years old and in the midst of his transition when he suddenly felt unwell and sought medical help. There, he learned that he was three months pregnant. Faced with a choice between continuing his transition or preserving the pregnancy, Tanius made a decision and never regretted it for a moment.

Wicked liars. These aren't the same people. The tattoos disappeared the longer the fake pregnancy??? Cropped. This is the platform for the fake historical news.


On January 3, 2022, Zanius was born. Now, when you look at the photos and videos posted by his transgender father, you see that he is an ordinary child that learns to make the first steps and bathes in the attention of the people around him.

Tanius decided to tell about his pregnancy and delivery experience to other people. His TikTok channel now has over 1 million subscribers with more than 11 million likes.

Tanius is often called the “seahorse dad” because male seahorses carry and give birth to their children. But he is proud of his nickname, and he says that he uses all the resources of his body to raise a healthy child.

The transgender father says that since he still has the ability to breastfeed, he will continue to do that. Besides, Zanius refused to drink from a bottle. Tanius replied to the haters, “My child has to eat. I can’t sit there and starve him.”

When Tanius learned about his pregnancy, he was in the epicenter of his transition. So, he had to stop taking testosterone. It wasn’t easy, the lack of hormones seriously affected his well-being.

In an interview, the young father said that he was scared of breastfeeding his child at first, because he didn’t know how other people would react. But later, caring for his child became more important.

At first, Tanius sought help among breastfeeding consultants. But none of them could give qualified help to the transgender father. So he started researching on his own and quickly learned all the necessary things by himself.

Tanius expected to receive some pushback from others who didn’t understand his experience, and some people did voice doubts based on their own preconceptions. He was told that men didn’t have the right to carry children, and that since he had started transitioning, he wasn’t supposed to stop halfway because of the pregnancy.

But none of these comments broke Tanius. He admitted that he was quite upset, but later, he realized that he just needs to continue sharing his experience. Perhaps, the video diary Tanius has on TikTok, and his calm reaction to criticism, can help another transgender father if he finds himself in a similar situation and decides to carry the pregnancy to term.

Some claimed Zanius would become ’spoiled’ or unhealthy as he grew older. Shocking responses included messages such as ’You don’t belong on this planet carrying a child,’ ’Men don’t carry babies,’ and ’Go back to where you came from.’

Tanius candidly shared, “Somebody said he’s gonna resent me once he finds out that I carried him, and he’s gonna be so confused or whatnot because he doesn’t have a mom and dad.” He added, “I got a lot of backlash, it got the best of me real bad. But I’m like, maybe if I continue sharing, I might be able to help the next individual.”

“Feel comfortable and know that you’re not alone. Not everyone is ok with our lifestyle, and that’s ok. We are not here to please anyone but ourselves”, Tanius writes in his channel.

At the beginning of 2024, Zanius turned 2, and his father heartwarmingly celebrated the little one on Instagram: ’These last 2 years, I’ve done a lot of growing, and I have to thank Za’Nius for that. He came when I needed him the most. He’s been my saving grace, my reality check, my peace, my happiness, my greatest blessing. I’m forever grateful.’

Look at celebrities who have undergone transition and now have blossomed more than before.
